Typo Tuesday 12/27/16

Advance warning: there’s nothing humorous about this typo. It appeared as a headline in  a major NJ newspaper, making me fear that copyediting is a dying art in newspaper publishing.

“Wokrer’s widow calls her husband ‘heroic'”

It should have read “Worker’s” (and no it wasn’t the deceased gentleman’s surname).
